BOXERS TAKE EUROPE BY STORM
Jun 22, 2018
Boxers Ziad Ishaish and Obada Al Kesbah have made a massive impact at the 45th Chemistry Cup which is taking place in Halle, Germany.
The pair have reached the semi-finals of their respective weights following stunning performances against some of Europe’s top fighters.
Jordan is one of only three non-European countries taking part, and they will be guaranteed two medals.
Al Kesbah has reached the last four after beating Russia’s former AIBA Junior World Champion Ivan Kozolvesky in the quarter-final of the 64kg.
He will now meet India’s Diheraj for a place in the final. Ziad booked his semi-final spot with a win over Germany’s Silvio Chelri in the 75kg weight and will now fight Andre Kovalshok, from Russia.
Meanwhile, both Mohammad Al Wadi and Hussein Ishaish missed out in the last eight.
The event has attracted over 100 boxers from 16 countries.
